This is the presentation of Giuseppe Zanotti‘s Spring Summer Collection 2019 that debuted at Milan Fashion Week and an invitation only party for his 25 years as a brand. It happened in Via Montenapoleone 18 and the collection is meant to be a homage to the modern, strong and independent cosmopolitan woman. All shoes were in his own personal glamorous style, although extremely versatile and adaptable to his target, adding a new lower heights to his overly famous sexy high heels.
Zanotti summed up his collection by saying “it’s everyday red carpet”, a collection of sophisticated and embellished but also wearable shoes, proportioned and classic with a twist. For the Spring/Summer Collection, Zanotti chose noble fabrics and materials including: leopard, reptile, suede, with colors from elegant black to bright salmon, from beige, off white to sparkling pink. Sandals are decorated with crystals and solitaires. With his own words, Zanetti said “crystal, diamonds, they are in my blood”.
At the presentation you could find a lot: beautifully designed sandals with a signature oversized peony, collaboration shoes with New York Designer Christian Cowan and the Michael Jackson’s tribute sneakers. For these last ones, the legendary jacket from the video “Bad” was also displayed together with the shoes. An extra note: the jacket had its own body guard monitoring the room.
Zanotti said that the 25th anniversary was a way to reflect on its past and look back at his archives. And it was not only about shoes, but also about bags and accessories: the clutches are horizontal, cylindric and come in all colors and fashions of the collection.
Zanotti’s Spring Summer Collection 2019 can be described as elegance, and according to Zanotti “the real elegance is in the perfect balance between madness and simplicity”.
The same rooms where Zanotti was exhibited, Casadei showed his Spring Summer Collection marking their 60th anniversary. The knee-high gladiator sandal is the most striking symbol of the new collection in a series inspired by the 60’s.
